“Then the shepherds came and drove them away. But Moses stood up, helped them and watered their flock.” (Exodus 2:17)
The spiritual people will always have compassion over others and stand by them. They will initiate to solve their problems. There were seven daughters to Jethro, the priest of Midian. Those daughters filled the tanks with water for the sheep to drink. Since they did not have male companions, the Egyptian shepherds chased them out.
Moses was spiritual and stood for justice. When a Hebrew was hit by an Egyptian, he stood by the justice. He was the one to intervene between two fighting Hebrew brothers and make peace. Though Moses lived in a palace his stress was always on justice. You too should have the good quality of helping the believers. Some evil forces may try to suppress the people of God. They may commit injustice. When you stand by God and initiate to help such people, great will be your reward in heaven. Paul the Apostle says “Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. ….But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me (II Timothy 4:14, 17).
Who is our God? He is a universal judge. He is the one to go nearer to the people in suffering and help. When people of God are put into trouble He helps them by pleading for them and executing justice for them. The selfless nature of helping others found in Moses is praise worthy. Today, the Christians are involved in numerous infighting, impatience and indifferent preaching. They simply ignore the problematic situations which in fact require Christian interference badly. For want of unity they remain separated and are unable to meet the demands of the Nation.
The women of Midian went back to their father’s house. But Moses did not know where to go and hence remained to stay near the well. But the help which Moses did brought the rewards and Jethro invited him to his home and provided him food, shelter with great respect. Dear children of God, if you are spiritual, the respect and honour will come in search of you.
Dear children of God, arm yourself with the qualities of Christ. You should never lose the special nature of the spirit. The resolution to help others has led unwittingly to entertain angels.
“Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels” (Hebrews 13:1, 2).
